Central College wrestlers were in California over the weekend, competing in the Menlo Invitational on Sunday. The tourney included three nationally ranked NAIA schools as well as several Division II teams and two Division I opponents.

The Dutch had 30 wrestlers in the tournament, 3 of which placed. Ted Dirkx placed third at 285 pounds, Reid Imerman and Dan Gordon both brought home 4th place finishes at 165 and 197 pounds, respectively.

The Dutch return home Wednesday to prepare for Saturday’s Chuck Porter Duals at Knox College in Galesburg, Ill.
